Take it to dump! I dont like the fact of all the fees they stick in there either.
The point is, they have no right to MANDATe that I cant opt out, I have a right to basic water services if I CHOOSE.
Im tired of people in the government acting like they are royalty, they are public trustees, they are supposed to look out for our best interest, not spend tax payer money lavishly!
Good luck! My neighbor was charged a 135.00 and still doesn't know why? They haven't provided proof for the charge. She called her council rep (Floyd) he informed her he was on vacation and would call back. I spoke with her yesterday-he hasn't returned her call (5 weeks ago). We will be voting him out! Your right we need to focus on the issues right here at home..
IF we organize and get more people to complain about the issues and our lack of representation, its like being TAXED without representation. They need to change some of their (Illegal Laws) ordenances.
We need to start now, if not its going to be too late, we need to go to their meetings and speak up!
The things is Sebekm that kind of thinking could just as well be used by SOME people to shoot and KILL POTENTIAL killers or to jail them because they fit a profile, or they once did something that was wrong.
In the USA we dont convict anyone of something UNTIL they are proven beyond a shadow of a doubt they are guilty or do we. The recent fast tracking of NDAA will allow Americans to be DISAPPEARED because they are POTENTIAL disidents.
When you start mandating one thing it can easily become acceptable to MANDATE more and more wouldnt you agree?
Why not just let people opt out and if thy dont take their trash away fine neighbors report them and then FINE them.
This same argument can be made for everything against the CONSTITUTION.
READ your bill item by ITEM, part of it are just fees, same as if you pay for gas, a hefty FEE of nothing to pay for line usage, What Im paying to use their lines and the gas?
We have allowed this to happen because we THINK our nieghbors MIGHT do something, not because they did it, but because tehy might?
You understand how AGAINST the Constitution that is right?
And how about the lavish offices and spending of mayor to go to Mexico?
Have you read about the citys and Liberty counties TRAVEL expences?
What the heck are they traveling for? Are they royalty? ITs rediculous!
Sebekm I respecfully disagree with everything you say above. The subtle POLICE STATE we live in now is tarted by simple things like "MANDATORY" garbage collection.
Its the very LEAST of our worries. but to tell me to go live somewhere else as you SUBTLY did, with the NEO NAZI's i just witnessed while traveling, is sad. I want to help community, but I disagree with ANYTHING Mandatory other than what is REALLY needed.
Lawlessness isnt caused by trash collection. How about mandating our COUNTY government STOP spending so frivolously the bill doesnt have to be so high?
They hide fees in things like this. AND THAT IS TAXATION without REPRESENTATION!
The added garbage reads like this
Garbage disposal 4.97
Dry Trash Collection 5.92
Garbage collection 12.46
My point is the city forces you to pay them, no competition, we should allow others to compete then it would lower the prices, right now we have a MAFIA running everything and MAKING US PAY. I dont like Mafia's!
Especially when I see them buying new things all the time, and going on trips to Mexico, or where ever on our dimes!
Sebekm the reason I disagree so strongly is because the city has a monopoly and MAKES us pay, its like the mafia. Only the government hates the mafia because they hate competition.
AND its unconstitutional because they are forcing us.Its TAXATION without representation.
I dont need a lawyer, and any normal citizen should know ther constitutional rights well enough to know enough to argue this case. A 5 minute reread of it lets you know the FORCED payment of the fees without having a vote is illegal.
The point is ALL these small things "FEES" on us without US VOTING, has got to stop.
